{Clean and Simple} CASology 225 – Candle

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

week-226-candle

Take a look at my card:

40-years-old-cas

For this week’s cue card, I used Sweet Stamp Shop Celebrate Cake and Altenew Celebrate Stamp set.

I stamped the images using the Mini Misti and Clearsnap Archival Wicked Black ink.
Then I colored the number and candle frame with Copic Markers.
After that I used We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to round the bottom left corner of the card.

Super simple and easy.

Are you inspired to play along?  Please let me know below!

Hello everyone!!  Yayyy, my very first blog hop featuring new products from Your Next Stamps tickles me pink!!

If you’ve been hopping along, you would have arrived from Laura Whitaker’s blog and if you’d like to start from the beginning, you can click on over to the linky at the bottom and start at Francine’s blog.

As one of the newest members on the team, I’m over the top excited about this opportunity and this great release!  All of the sets and dies are amazing!!  My favorite one is the Word Critters-Exotic Animals stamp set and die!  I used that set on one of my cards below.

Are you ready for my big reveal?  I made two cards to inspire you!

Take a look at my cards:

Celebrate with a bang (YNS) copy

Happy 4th of July the day after!! Who doesn’t love fireworks. I love them.  My nieces, daughter, sisters and I went to view the fireworks in our neighborhood yesterday and I have to say, none of those compared to my card above, LOL!!!

Hello (YNS)

Now on to my favorite card for this release!!  I totally, totally love this card!!  When looking at this stamp set, I thought zoo and picture taking.  How many time do we go to the zoo and see the animals behind the gate or bars and we take a picture.  That is what I did here!!

Take a look at the inside:

Hello inside 2 (YNS)

Hello Inside (YNS)

The card stays closed with this Tombow Hook & Loops Tabs.  This is how I was able to create the distance between the front of the card and the inside.  I think its so super cute!!
